After three introductory sessions this colloquium will discuss work in progress by leading contemporary scholars of global and
comparative public law, who will discuss their work in person with participants. The focus of most contributions will involve central
concepts and ideas relating to public law (such as sovereignty, democracy, rule of law, human rights) generally or as as they play out
in specific institutional and doctrinal contexts. Texts will be distributed in advance and participants are expected to read and prepare
each session to enable them to engage in discussions with the author.
The majority of presenting scholars will present in English language,the lingua franca of global public law scholarship. The colloquium is
likely to be of particular interest to persons seriously considering writing a dissertation in either legal or political philosophy or
public, European or international law.
